Wendy Williams is adamant she did not pass gas on her television show last week.  

Fans were convinced they heard the TV host fart last week on her show, but Wendy, 55, insisted that was not the case when addressing ‘fartgate’ on The Wendy Williams Show on Thursday.  

A member of Wendy’s production team said the sound people could hear was actually coming from backstage.

‘Let me tell you something right now, okay?’ Wendy started as ‘Fartgate’ appeared on the screen behind her. ‘I don’t lean over like this to release a fart, I lean over like this because it’s comfortable. If I sit [straight up] all the time, it’s heavy on my spine. I like to release my hips and lean. I’ve been doing this for 11 years on this show.’

‘I have never farted once on this show,’ she said. ‘As a matter of fact, I barely fart, you know why? Gas gets released several different ways and mine is belching because all I do is talk.’

Had she farted, Wendy insists she would have stopped what she was doing to address it, because ‘farts are always funny.’ 

‘By the sound of that fart, I would have had to go change my costume, I would have left a mark in the seat,’ she said. ‘I wouldn’t even save the costume, I’d throw it away. It’d be soiled beyond soiled-tivity.’

The show’s gaffer, John Anderson, said the sound that people could hear in the clip was the team preparing for a chemistry experiment segment backstage.   

‘We were filling up a fish tank backstage and we didn’t have the proper hose,’ he said. ‘It was sputtering like someone was farting. It wasn’t Wendy!’   

Wendy went viral last week after she appeared to pass gas while speaking about football player Odell Beckham last week.

The talk show host said sorry to the cleft community, while encouraging viewers to ‘learn more’ about supporting the community.

She also promised to donate money to Operation Smile and the American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association to help families dealing with the condition.
